9780231170703: The Subject of Torture: Psychoanalysis, Biopolitics, and Media Representations
Review:

One of the clearest signs of the ethical regression that characterizes the last decade is the changed status of torture in public discourse: no longer a taboo, something that is to be done in secret, torture is today a topic of "rational" legal, ethical, and medical debates. This renormalization of torture would not have been possible without movies and TV series which were gradually rendering it acceptable. This is why Neroni's The Subject of Torture reaches well beyond cultural studies and provides a courageous examination of the ongoing moral catastrophe - everyone who cares about our ethical predicament should read it. The book is not only very readable and simultaneously a work of highest academic standards, it is much more: an alarm call that should awaken us all from our moral slumber. -- Slavoj Zizek, author of Less Than Nothing and The Year of Dreaming Dangerously and co-author of What Does Europe Want? Wonderfully astute, politically timely, and deeply engaging. Neroni undertakes the pressing task of destroying the logic that sustains contemporary justifications for torture. The Subject of Torture is truly path-breaking in its lucid engagement with the torture debate from a psychoanalytic perspective. -- Jennifer Friedlander, Pomona College The suffering, tremulous body examined in this excellent book is not that of the torture victim, who must pay in the flesh for our access to truth, but that of the torturer, who conceals his obscene pleasure behind euphemisms such as 'enhanced interrogation' and rationalizations based on false scenarios of imminent threat. Neroni's expert and detailed readings of the Abu Ghraib photographs, documentary films about the events leading up to them, and the new genre of 'torture porn' that appeared in their wake, execute a fine twist, one that completely revises the course of reflections on the body at stake in biopolitics. -- Joan Copjec, Brown University Neroni deftly illuminates the conspicuous up-tick of post-9/11 media representations of torture by adopting the neglected but indispensable viewpoint of unconscious motives and distorting fantasies. A valuable contribution. -- Richard Boothby, Loyola University Maryland

From the Publisher:

Considering representations of torture in such television series as 24, Alias, and Homeland; the documentaries Taxi to the Dark Side (2007), Ghosts of Abu Ghraib (2007), and Standard Operating Procedure (2008); and "torture porn" feature films from the Saw and Hostel series, Hilary Neroni unites aesthetic and theoretical analysis to provide a unique portal into theorizing biopower and its relation to the desiring subject. Her work ultimately showcases film and television studies' singular ability to expose and potentially disable the fantasies that sustain torture and the regimes that deploy it.
